“Good food, nice people”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night because because we were told that they do a Paella special on a Friday night. We were a bit late so by the time we were served the Paella was sold out. We ordered fish was was very good. We made reservations for the following Friday. We turned up on time for dinner and had their Friday night specialty: "great paella!"

“Quality not Quantity”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

A Nice placed tucked away between two buildings. The atmosphere was great, you sneak in via a path lined with small trees. There were little fans on the walls to keep the air circulating since it's pretty enclosed for being outdoors. It does get a tad warm in the corners or in the direct sun. Choose your seating carefully. The food was good with a French Mediterranean theme. My wife had a Vol au vent Lobster and I had a Beef Dip sandwich, to drink we just had pop.

The total bill came to $40 USD (a tad much for lunch). Also the service was a little slow for our tastes, especially for a lunch. So if your looking for a quick lunch so you can get back to your souvenir shopping don't go here.
